I like chunky necks. I tend to get carried away in this respect. The biggest necks on guitars I've owned was on a Nocaster and one on an R7 LP. They felt nice to hold but I'd always suffer fatigue in the long run. So now I have a tele that is only slightly chunky. I haven't measured it but it feels like about a .900 at the first fret to about .950 at the 12th. It seems to be about the right compromise for me. I wouldn't want anything skinnier. I like 6105 frets. I once had a guitar that had stainless steel and I loved them but the neck was too skinny so I sold it. I'd love to get stainless steel on my current guitar but its new and plays fine the way it is so I'm not going to mess with it. I prefer a neck thats almost down to the wood. Has the best feel. U shape is my preference.
